    I haven't watched that one yet.

    I did watch Birdbox with Sandra Bullock. I found it pretty enjoyable until the resolution, which was stupid in my opinion. She's always a reliable actress, so there's that.

    Sometimes the actors can carry the movie a bit, I find.

    The last movie we watched with friends is "I am Legend." I liked the plot and the actor. The film is very good and interesting.

    I went to the Tribeca Film Festival over the weekend, and we saw "Meeting Gorbachev".

    Absolutely fantastic, I highly recommend it!

    Green Book. A movie everyone should watch.

    It is therefore worth while to search out the bounds between opinion and knowledge; and examine by what measures, in things whereof we have no certain knowledge, we ought to regulate our assent and moderate our persuasion. (John Locke)

    "Bohemian Rhapsody", the bio-film on Freddie Mercury. I thought it was great.

    Also, "The Mule", with Clint Eastwood. Which was very entertaining.

    Awesome and Entertaining!

    Well, it's a series, not a movie, but...

    I'm watching Chernobyl on HBO. I hate to say it, but I have to force myself to keep watching it. I find it confusing and terrifying/depressing in equal measure.

    That's it; I can't keep watching this thing. If I took my blood pressure last night, the gauge would probably have exploded like the freaking core of the reactor. Incompetence and cowardice married to total blind adherence to ideology leading to the eventual death of all those innocents practically set my hair on fire. I wanted to reach back in time and haul all of the scientists, all the way up the chain and all the stupid party bureaucrats and put them in front of a firing squad!

    Well, after a full, HONEST, trial, of course. :)

    A hospital a mile from a nuclear reactor doesn’t stock iodine pills? The nurse knew they should have had them. Firemen going to put out a fire at a reactor don’t have protective gear? Their instruments for measuring true radiation are locked in a safe to which they’ve lost the key? Why, anyway, wouldn't all their gauges measure the TRUE radiation?Townspeople so ignorant they let their children play in nuclear dust? Oh, and a manager who is told repeatedly there is no more core and it has totally blown up refuses to believe it, and spends the rest of the time in shock meekly doing what he is told. Then, to cap it all off, the Party people say it’s not dangerous; we can’t evacuate the people in surrounding villages because it not only would start a panic but would put Soviet Socialism in disrepute. What’s the reaction? Absolute submission. Ideology beats everything.

    Incredible. It’s like the Three Stooges running a nuclear reactor. This was a country with hundreds of nuclear weapons? Thank God they’ve been decommissioned. They had no idea what they were doing.

    What was that report which said most of their technology just flat out didn't work, but they were so afraid of the party bosses that they just falsified the reports?

    I’m not saying accidents couldn’t happen anywhere, because they do, but they really were astoundingly inept. I can’t imagine that the French reactors are run so incompetently. As for our cock ups with this kind of technology, what I used to think was horrific doesn't hold a candle to this.

    I think it is neither a sci-fi movie nor a distopic one, but a metaphor about our society:

    The White Crow is worth a look. It’s the story of the early career of Nureyev; beautiful dancing of course, but also solid performances by a mostly unknown cast.

    More of the same kind of "1984"



    These two films are dark and hard to watch, but I'll put some more easy to enjoy...

    Full remastered and retouched movie for free. 1911 L'inferno. I think it would be better if you mash the volume button down

    Periodically I need to see the whole Il Marchese del Grillo (The Marquis of Grillo), because it's a powerful antidepressant: "'nnamo, quando se scherza bisogna esse seri!" (=come on, when you joke you have to be serious!) :)
